The Associated Press today:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Homeland Security Department's internal watchdog says the agency needlessly delayed releasing documents to reporters and others under the Freedom of Information Act because of a now-rescinded policy requiring approval first from political appointees, The Associated Press has learned.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has scheduled a hearing on the DHS/FOIA issue for Thursday morning.
